Idly Upma

Today its a great recipe that I am going to share. Its idly upma. Many people prefer idly upma than plain idlies. Also its a wonderful tea time snack/ Brunch/ Lunch Box idea.

Before going into the recipe let me add tips of this recipe:

1. Idlies should be of room temperature (Do not use hot steaming idlies).
2. Add more garlic and turmeric as fried garlic and roasted turmeric combo gives a wonderful taste.

Onion- 2
